Die hard!!!

I'm sitting at a traffic light on my way home from work today. A guy pulls up next to me on a Ninja wearing a pair of shorts. Kicker is it's 35 degrees and snowing. Hope he didn't have too far to travel.

I personally think it is dumb to wear shorts when riding a motorcycle, but that guy is crazy.

Maybe he lost more than his shirt in a poker game.

My old next door neighbor in college was from the part of North Dakota that is in the arctic circle. He used to come over barefooted when it was snowing and ride his bike in crazy cold temperatures wearing a t-shirt and jeans.

I have also seen him ride with no helmet (illegal in NC), and just shorts with a pistol stuck in his pocket. No shirt, no shoes. He had a good excuse. His bike had been stolen two weeks earlier and he had gotten a new one. He saw his old bike ride by and tried to catch the guy. Luckily he got away. I am pretty certain that would have ended really badly if my buddy had found him. I know he didn't really want to shoot anyone, but bad things happen when you have a hurt dog cornered.

Horsepower is an illusion.
Torque is the source of all good things.

When it's hot out I don't wear things I SHOULD wear but I couldn't imagine doing it in flip flops and when it's freezing out.

How do you shift in flip flops? I imagine it wouldn't be too good in the old phalanges.

I'll bet that's where the heel-toe shifter comes in handy. Except I suspect they don't have those on Ninjas

LOL! I have to agree. That was my first thought also. Can you say shrinkage George Costanza? 30 degrees on my way to work today, I passed a guy on a Goldwing. So what is the coldest temperature you regularly ride at before you hang it up? Comments anyone?
